Despite director Matthew Vaughn signing to direct the highly-anticipated X-Men: First Class yesterday (read BoxOffice.com's news story here), comic book writer Mark Millar has claimed in a press release that Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall is scheduled for 2012.
In the announcement (which is designed to promote a "first-look" at Kick-Ass 2 in the first issue of a UK magazine called CLiNT), Millar says that a sequel has already been lined up to film in 2011, with a release date in 2012. This is theoretically possible, if Vaughn shoots Kick-Ass 2 right after First Class, but the first film's somewhat underwhelming box office (currently standing at $42.2 million) and the current lack of a screenplay stand in the way.
Until further confirmation is made, any news on Kick-Ass 2 should be taken with a grain of salt, although cast and crew alike have all stated their interest in making a sequel. Meanwhile, Millar is hard at work on a comic book sequel, which will also be titled Kick-Ass: Balls to the Wall, and is expected to hit stores in 2011.
